Article 2 Construction and Interpretation

Section 13-201 Restrictions and Limitations.
Any restriction or limitation imposed on the authority of the Council by Charter provision, applies only as its language explicitly and necessarily requires. Simultaneous or subsequent specification of authority is not exclusive and does not impair other or general authority and power granted by existing or future Charter provisions, by statute or by general law. Specification of procedures does not exclude other or alternative procedures unless expressly stated to be exclusive. The City has authority to carry out general or special powers expressed or implied by Charter, statute or general law, as the Council finds necessary or convenient. This Section applies, unless expressly negatived, to all present and future Charter provisions. [New sec. Nov. 8, 1966.]

Section 13-202 Intent of Reinclusion of Former Charter Provisions.
Whenever a provision in a City Charter has been continued as an ordinance provision and subsequently reincluded in the Charter without substantive change, the reincluded provision shall be a continuance of the prior Charter provision to the extent of its reinclusion as though continued in the Charter without interruption. [New sec. Nov. 8, 1966.]
